Foggy glass or broken glass replacement is something Mr Cranky also offers. Foggy glass happens over time especially with the climate we have up in Canada. The reason the window goes foggy is due to seal failure, the spacer bar contains a desiccant which does absorb moisture, however it can only absorb so much and then you get fogging. Whilst some people do not mind foggy windows, most want them to be replaced. You do not need to replace your windows, by replacing just the glass you save money!
Fogging occurs between the 2 glass panes on the inside. If you have condensation on the inside of the window that can be removed with a cloth this is not foggy it means you may have too much humidity in the house or if you have shutters you should open them slightly so warm air can pass up through and across the glass. Mold on the window can be removed by using a bleach cleaner to kill it.
